About AHHA

Our vision and purpose

The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) is Australia’s national peak body for public and not-for-profit hospitals and healthcare providers.

  • Our vision is for the best possible healthcare system that supports a healthy Australia.
  • Our purpose is to drive collective action across the healthcare system for reform that improves the health and wellbeing of Australians.

Our membership includes state health departments, Local Hospital Networks and public hospitals, community health services, Primary Health Networks and primary healthcare providers, aged care providers, universities, individual health professionals and academics. As such, we are uniquely placed to be an independent, national voice for universal high-quality healthcare to benefit the whole community.
